Black Hairstyles

Smooth Operator
Sleek styles are right on trend ladies! Easily transform your tresses by smoothing your texture into a glossy, slick appearance. These stunning manes are all the hair inspiration you need!

Sleek Pony
A perfectly shiny and smooth ponytail.
Get the look: Honey-blonde and mocha strands are pulled into a super smooth low ponytail detailed with a deep part. Stylist Carol Davis, of KMP Nails in Baltimore, MD, added just the right amount shine to finish.

Babe Bob
Dark strands styled into a sleek bob.
Get the look: The styling team from A Timeless Touch Hair Salon in Marrow, GA, crafted a full sew-in weave to begin this look . The ebony strands are snipped into an asymmetrical bob using clippers and paired with a blunt bang. Finally, a shine spray is misted on for a perfect finish.

Neon Crop
Brightly colored and slick short cut.
Get the look: This modern update on a classic bowl-cut by Tinq Rich, of Center Stage Hair in Washington, DC, is a must-try. A shadowy root blends into an iridescent yellow hue that’s brushed into a straight texture then lightly “ruffled” for texture.
